A nice circle where you are allowed to hug anyone you want. Next time you go to a concert please run to the center of that circle, if you get there first you'll get the most hugs! Hug everyone, but most importantly have fun!

Ps. Ignore the other definitions of "moshpit" they just want to scare you away cause they want to get to the center first. Don't let them fool you!
Lead singer: MOSHPIT!

Everyone: *runs to the center*

Leader singer: looks like the chick in the white shirt got there first!

Everyone: aw!

Lead singer: everyone hug her!

Everyone: *hugs her*

Girl in white shirt: yay! Best day of my life!

Jumping around, punching, kicking, and generally being violent to <b>LIVE</b> music, usually heavy metal, punk rock, hardcore or anything fast and hard.

It is not an excuse to try and hurt people but was origionally formed due to heavy metallers trying to release some of the fustrations of life.

Early Punkers didnt mosh, they skanked, pogoed and put stanley knives in each others backs.
"Dude! what happened to your arm?"

"Some tosser took a skateboard into the moshpit. Prick"

"Sucks to be you man."
